We visited the site on a very cold and grey January morning which added to the whole impression of the site. Prepare to feel shocked and sad, but this is also important and intented. An absolute must see.

It was a sad camp as the others but most parts were closed and the rest was like a photo museum. But i advise people to visit there, one of the "must see" places.

The Tour Guide we had was great, now I understand why you should not take photos at a place like this, unless they are respectful ones. So many people taking photos at the front gate with smiles - not necessary or inside the chambers,with smiles,...More

We spent a little over three hours walking through the old concentration camp. That is not nearly enough to qualitatively take in all of the information, pictures and atmoshpere that you will encounter there. If you are interested in learning about the start of the...More

It is very easy to find your way to the memorial site by public transport so I wouldn't spend the money joining a tour. The film is very sobering and informative and the exhibitions also gave you an insight into what it might have been...More

We enjoyed the tour and found the content appropriate for both our teenagers -14 and 16. The weather was freezing and much of the tour is conducted outside - can only give you a glimpse into what it must have been like. Information about n...More

We visited Dachau Concentration Camp in December and it has snowed that morning. Had you not know the history of this place, the snow made it seem rather peaceful and park like. Their is no entrance fee to enter and you tour the grounds at...More

We took our 8 and 10 year old. Any age is allowed into the site. We were able to tour parts of the camp on our own that were not as disturbing as other parts. My wife would check out an area ahead of us, then decide if the... More
